Tammy Baldwin To Ron Johnson: 'I'm Quite Confident' I Understand The Federal Budget


Tammy Baldwin To Ron Johnson: 'I'm Quite Confident' I Understand The Federal Budget

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D), Wisconsin's new senator-elect, is confident that she will be able to understand the federal budget without the assistance of Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

In an Associated Press interview on Wednesday, Johnson said he hoped he would be able to work with Baldwin in the Senate -- as soon as he explained the "facts" of the budget to her.

"Hopefully I can sit down and lay out for her my best understanding of the federal budget because they're simply the facts," he said. "Hopefully she'll agree with what the facts are and work toward common sense solutions."

"I was a double major in college in mathematics and political science, and I served for six years on the House Budget Committee in my first six years in the House," Baldwin responded in an interview with The Huffington Post on Friday.

"And I am very confident that when proposals come before the U.S. Senate, I will be able to evaluate them as to how they benefit or harm middle-class Wisconsinites. A yardstick of 'does it create jobs,' 'does it lower the deficit' and 'does it help grow the middle class' is an important one. I'm quite confident that I have those abilities," she added.

Go get him Tammy!
I am sure Tammy can teach HIM a thing or two!
Tammy has been in Congress since 1999 and Johnson is a 2011 newbie

7. Rhymes with 'pigs'

The GOP has lost their mind and they will be losing all of their seats in both houses. They belong in the 1940's.


They belong with the Whigs!

4. She's so polite about how she puts him down

I admire that. My instinct would be to tell him to go teach his grandmother to suck eggs and to never talk to me or about me again. But that's why I could never be a politician!

Go Tammy!
